Access to Dental Care Growing for Sarasota with Opening of Great Expressions Office

November 6, 2017

(Nov. 06, 2017) – Great Expressions Dental Centers (GEDC), a leading dental service organization, is committing to providing high-quality dental care to the Sarasota community by opening a new office located at 5278 University Parkway. This affiliation marks GEDC’s first office in Sarasota, and 120th in the state of Florida.

“The opening of our office in Sarasota is a response to the increased demand for full-service dental practices throughout Florida,” said Richard Beckman, CEO of GEDC. “Patients continue to seek out the high quality dental services Great Expressions provides in our warm and inviting state-of-the-art facilities.”

The new office will offer general dentistry, children’s dentistry, orthodontics and oral surgery, among other services, for the entire family. Patients can also take advantage of GEDC’s dental insurance alternative, Smile Protection Plan®, which provides patients without insurance access to dental care.

“We anticipate the Sarasota community to be welcoming and responsive to our patient services and involvement in the community,” said Beckman. “We look forward to providing lasting patient service and care to those that have come to expect it.”

As one of the largest providers of dental health services, GEDC is uniquely able to provide the most technologically advanced dental services at an affordable price and in a comfortable, friendly environment.

GEDC is also encouraging patients to use all remaining 2017 flex spending benefits by making an appointment with a dentist no later than December 31, 2017. To find out how much money is available in unused benefits or a flex spending account, call the dental insurance company’s customer service number, typically located on the back of an insurance card.
